Abstract: As the world becomes more alert on issues such as peak oil and climate change, many neglect the problems arising with soil, one of the most important natural resource and the basic foundation of life. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate different types of soil degradation and its impacts on soil productivity in Canada by focusing on three different regions: British Columbia, the Prairies and the Atlantic provinces.
